The History of Halloween

Yes, today is the day! Not only do you get free candy from your neighbors (and possibly some free toilet paper from their unruly teenage kids), you get a slew of new material from The Weirding!

When we were growing up, it was the best day of the year next to Christmas! There were fantastic TV specials and neighborhoods filled with little ghosts, goblins, and princesses, bustling from door to door with their plastic pumpkins in tow. The days that followed found everyone beside a horde of candy, deep in talks of trade.

But Halloween has been dealt some serious damage in recent years, thanks largely to media scare tactics and religious zealots. So, in the interest of getting to the bottom of the whole thing, The OddBlog decided to take a spin around the ol' InterWeb and see what we could dig up on this ancient holiday:



And so, that's about as much digging as we needed to do - no sense rehashing the same, right? As well, you might like to check out the festivities we've been throwing over to The Rundown all day long - video after video of horrific goodies I toiled to turn-up on the ol' YouTube. And, last but nowhere near least, today is the big unveiling of a cornucopia of content over to The Weirding.

Happy Hallowe'en, y'all!
